Trench Rescue

Trenches are typically found at construction sites or where utilities are being worked on or installed. Trench emergencies usually occur from the sides of the trench collapsing in on a victim. Our Department’s special operation team members are trained to the technician level for Trench rescue.

Training consists of:
  • rope rescue
  • atmospheric monitoring
  • stabilizing the walls of the trench (shoring)
  • victim removal
